Toppers Pizza uses house-made dough whipped up fresh every day to create its eclectic selection of 19 different house-specialty pizzas. Conventional pies such as the Ultimate Pepperoni Topper complement creative pizzas such as the Chicken Tuscano Topper, decorated with spinach, garlic-roasted tomatoes, feta cheese, and grilled chicken. All Toppers’ pizzas are capable of peaceful cohabitation with Topperstix, breadsticks covered in cheese, garlic butter, and toppings that range from bacon to taco meat. Eaters can amplify any 14-inch house pizza by turning it into a TallBoy—a pizza built upon a Topperstix crust. Both Toppers locations are open until at least 1 a.m. seven days a week, making them a convenient way to fuel up for a long night of berating constellations.
Martino's authentic Italian menu offers traditional dishes forged from fresh ingredients and swathed in sauce prepared daily. Begin a meal by dunking beer-battered slices of fried zucchini ($5.49) in marinara sauce before corralling house-made meatballs within an edible enclosure of imported Italian spaghetti ($9.95). Pizzas divvy themselves by slice ($2.50 for cheese; $0.50/topping) or fly from the oven as complete saucers ($9.95–$13.95), powered by toppings such as red peppers, pineapple, ground beef, and cheese fusion ($1.75–$2.50/topping). Chefs roll locally sourced chicken cuts in breading before frying them and smothering them in provolone for the chicken parmesan hoagie, served with italian bread and fries ($6.99). Postprandial selections from a battery of 15-20 house-made gelatos sate cravings of all flavors, as long as it's frozen.
At PapaRoni's Pizza & Ice Cream, the aroma of freshly made pizzas, calzones, and subs lures customers in for a decadent feeding frenzy. The chefs fleck specialty pizzas in toppings including asiago cheese, provolone, and ground beef, and each of their signature white pizzas hosts fixings on a foundation of house-made garlic sauce, ricotta, and mozzarella. A lengthy dessert menu rewards well-behaved taste buds with a selection of sundaes, shakes, and soft-serve ice cream. Guests can sup in the restaurant's casual dining room, or take their meals to go to devour them at home, at the office, or in a rival pizza place’s parking lot.
For more than 15 years, Picasso’s Sports Cafe has sated stomachs with freshly tossed pizza dough, house-made sauce, and 13 kinds of award-winning wings. Cold beers clink as cheese melts inside burgers, calzones, and on top of pizza pies the way flame-torch-wielding angels melt frozen hearts. More than a dozen high-definition TVs and a massive movie screen flicker with sports games during meals, plus live trivia and free shuffleboard step in to entertain where athletes leave off.
Brothers Eugene and John Jetts opened their homonymically eponymous pizza parlor in 1978, creating recipes that eventually grew the chain to more than 200 locations throughout the U.S today. Jet's Pizza's signature is the squared, deep-dish crust, which can be rolled out into a pie cut so that every piece provides bites of the crisp edges and soft interior. Their cooks also hand-toss a traditional round crust and a New York–style thin crust, all of which can be flavored in eight ways with a dusting of Cajun seasoning, poppy seeds, or a combination of butter, garlic, and romano cheese dubbed the Turbo. As masters of repurposing, cooks can also cut romano-topped pizza dough into 8-inch slices to make toasted subs or a beret that attracts comely pigeons. Salads and hot wings make deliveries into multicourse meals for easy family dinners and catered events.
Since the flavors of chicken salad, Italian sausage, Philly cheese steaks, and chicken-fried Philly Oreos never stray far from the basic flavors of their protein bases, your mouth can get bored very quickly.
